I tried uploading a large SVG file that has an embedded bitmap image (PNG).
I did it this way because the PNG image shows static information, and with Inkscape I add annotations, text, arrows, squares and similar vector graphics.
The image is this one https://www.freecadweb.org/wiki/File:Fr ... isions.svg
This should work fine, but the wiki doesn't display it. You can however, download it and open it fine in your computer.
The wiki shows this error: "Invalid SVG file: Expected <svg> tag, got in NS"
I investigated the problem and it seems the MediaWiki software has a limit on the size of the SVG files that it will show. Since an SVG is an XML file that has a shape description language, its contents are normally just text, so the software expects to parse a small file (maybe less than 50 KB). However, when it includes the bitmap image, there is a lot of binary information embedded in the file, and the wiki fails parsing the file. This file in particular is around 350 KB, which isn't very big for a bitmap image, but it is for an SVG.
It seems the solution is to set the variable "wgSVGMetadataCutoff" to a larger value in the configuration files of the wiki, which only administrators can do.
* Invalid SVG files (Using Inkscape)
* Thumbnails of certain SVG files fail to render
Meanwhile to solve this issue, I convert the entire SVG file to a static PNG, and this is displayed correctly.
